2001 Explained (sort of)

If you ever got bogged down in Kubrick and Clarke's masterpiece, then try this rather spectacular piece of Flash that attempts to explain just what's going on...

I don't agree with chunks of the thesis of this piece, but then I've read Lost Worlds Of 2001, which goes a long way to showing what Clarke and Kubrick were aiming for...

I found that reading 2001 did a pretty good job of explaining it to me...

I've never had any problem whatsoever in understanding 2001.

perlmonger watched that for a few moments, and then gave up - it struck us as dull and patronising, and *breathtakingly* slow.

that should, of course, have read perlmonger *and I*.

not unlike Withnail and I, in many respects.

Well, that was exactly how I understood it when it was first on TV as a child (age 7? I am 37 now). My parents did not understand it at all at the time even though dad was an Asimov reader.
